Security

Security

  • Problem: some RETS servers allow access to too much data and the controls are not yet available

  • Let’s call it like it is

    • Features vary by vendor

    • Initial development effort $$

    • You must do your homework

  • Define your requirements up front - policies & business rules

Security is high-priority for all


Security1

Security

  • Manage access to data sets - roles / permissions

    • Can be tied to membership or separate application

  • Control who gains access to server

    • Login / Password required like FTP

    • User-Agent security can be required by application

    • Greater knowledge & skills required - RETS is more complex

  • Demand will drive improved solutions


Managing database changes

Managing Database Changes

  • Coordinating changes is hard work

  • Easier with RETS due to metadata

  • Provide access to new metadata – “dress rehearsal”

  • Proactive notification > 30 days

  • Maintain e-mail list - data customers

  • Try it yourself – using RETS client

Proactive communications are key
